I am trying to install the recovery Console with XP SP2, so it will display
on the OS menu. But when I run the winnt32.exe /cmdcons, setup comes back
stating that Setup cannot continue because the version of Windows I am
running is newer than the one on the CD.

Anyone find a workaround or something?

Make a new Windows XP Pro CD with SP2 slipstreamed,
then install the Recovery Console.

Either one of the following utilities makes slipstreaming
(integrating) SP2 into Windows XP a breeze:

or

AutoStreamer 1.0.33 (preferred)

Thank you, Carey. I was considering that option but wanted to know others
input. Atleast this gives me experience with an objective for 70-271.

You might also be interested in the following method (I have not tried
it) - it avoids having to burn a CD. See item #21. FWIW, I have already
downloaded the sp2 patch (250+)MB and extracted the required file. Let
me know if you want it.

This is the method I used. This can be found with the SPDEPLOY.HTM of the
Service Pack CD.

To create an installation of Windows XP integrated with the service pack

1.. Connect to the network or computer where you want to create the
distribution folder, and then set up Drive: to correspond to the
distribution folder. <I just used my own hard drive.>
2.. In the shared folder on the network, create a distribution folder for
the Windows XP installation files.
For example, to create a distribution folder named XPSP2_INT\PRO, type the
following:

mkdir Drive:\XPSP2_INT\PRO

Ensure that only the system administrator has full access to this folder.
Other users should have only Read and Execute permissions.

3.. Insert your version of the Windows XP product CD that does not include
the service pack into the CD-ROM drive, and then copy the contents of the CD
to the distribution folder that you created in Step 2. <Again, I just copied
it onto my hard drvie.>
For example, to copy the installation files and folders from the Windows
XP product CD in the CD-ROM drive (D:)  to the distribution folder named
XPSP2_INT\PRO, type the following:

xcopy D:\ Drive:\XPSP2_INT\PRO /E

4.. Remove the product CD from the CD-ROM drive, and then insert the
service pack CD.
5.. If you want to store these files locally (described in The Standalone
Installation earlier in this guide), you can extract the service pack source
files from XPsp2.exe and put them in a folder on your hard disk.
If you do not want to store these files locally, skip this step. The
installation will put the files in the default location. The default
location is randomly chosen and determined by the installation.

For example, to extract the service pack files located in the CD-ROM drive
(D:)  to a folder named temp on the drive where the distribution folder is
located, you would type the following:

D:\ XPsp2.exe /X: Drive:\temp

6.. If you extracted the files, you can apply the service pack to the
Windows XP installation files located in the folder named XPSP2_INT\PRO by
typing the following:
Drive:\temp\i386\update\update.exe /Integrate:D rive:\XPSP1_INT\PRO

For a list of command-line options that you can use with this command
line, see Command-Line Options for XPsp2.exe and Update.exe earlier in this
guide.

7.. The Setup Wizard for SP2 for Windows XP displays the progress of your
installation and informs you when the installation is completed.

But, what if your setup does not have a \windows\i386 folder? Should you
make one by copying it from the \sp2 extract folder?
